strived to ensure that justice for those who are most vulnerable among us is had. the late justice matthew tobreaner was revered as a legal scholar and humanitarian who did not hesitate to speak out on behalf of the disadvantaged and marginalized individuals. in fact, he expressed some time ago the very fundamental principle, whatever hardship poverty may cause in society generally, the judicial process must make itself available to the indigent. it must free itself of the sanctions born of financial inability. and it is that principle that is the foundation of this award. and so a memory of justice -- and i want to give a shout out to michael and the tobreaner for working so well since 2000 on collaborating on the meaning of this award. it has been an award that pays tributes to individuals who have made extraordinary efforts to assist the most vulnerable members of our community and to strengthen the principle of equal access to justice. so today it's my honor to represent a bay area woman who exemplifies her distinguished career in the bay area for over 45 years. as the first african-am

everything that we have done thus far, and by the way, without us having done those public/private partnerships, we would not have seen this grant. we learned that from the tiger one grants. leader pelosi was up there with me not too long ago when we were complimenting the structure of the old non-safe drive to welcome in the parkway. i know that as more competition comes from limited federal moneys, we have got to prove do we have our game together and our game and our act is about building the whole neighborhood. not just one part or the other. not just getting started. these funds are some competitive now that every time we win one, we're going to celebrate even better because they are in the context of other things that we have to do in a public/private setting. i want to thank fair lawn capital. i want to thank the mission bay development group that has been working on and on. i want to thank our redevelopment partners and d.p.w. and sfmta and all of our public agency partners for their working together because this does really create that collaboration that is absolut
to accommodate many modes end users. this is a street that is well used by cars. a number of muni lines go across broadway or long runway. we have bike routes, and we have traffic that is really important, particularly to the businesses that are on stockton street. one question we asked was if there is an opportunity to reallocate the roadway to better serve the uses we see on the street today? traffic analysis shows that there is a morning toll lane that is not at capacity right now, so our preferred design option really builds on this idea. what we have proposed is that we would eliminate that eastbound tolling, and that allows us to have two traffic lanes in each direction, and then we can provide parking all day on both sides of the street. a number of other streets -- streetscape amenities would be included such as crosswalk improvements, lighting. the package we are seeing in other streetscape improvements across the city. and in transit improvements. there are two bus stops on the street, so how to improve existing bus stop locations. if we zoom in, this is really the heart of the neighbor

schedule. these are all protective measures to insure a fair and equitable process is used in providing subtenant agreements and revenue flows are maximized. that in our best interest so the commencement of net revenue to this city is as early as possible. these are joint mutual goals of the corporation, association, and the city. i want to thank monica and michael for their presentation and thank the council and our counsel who spent years putting this together. it has been a thoughtful process going forward. we would not be here without the support and guidance of the corporation board as well as the pros a source the asian board who has been a partner in this venture. -- the pros association board. some issues need to come together but it has been moved out of land use and to the full board and it will be considering that i am on july 17. supervisor chu: does that complete your presentation? i do have a few questions. with regard to the 50-year positive experience we have currently, i think the budget analyst report noted in your presentation and you relate we have not been receiving
fraction of your employees were driving as opposed to using other boats? >> i don't have that in front of me but what -- as opposed to other modes. >> i don't have that in front of me. supervisor chiu: my understanding is the numbers are far different from what you are estimating that will be the new vehicle trips. these numbers -- there is a lot to be asked. if you could get that information to as quickly, that would be helpful. supervisor campos: i'm wondering if this assumption has been verified through the mta? can we hear from the mta on that? again -- we have had many discussions over the years about how we try to get people to ride public transit. when we have had questions about health care in this project, we have asked the department of public health -- we are talking about public transit and i'm wondering ifln[9 the mta has an opinion as to how accurate an assumption that is already based on data that is 11 years old -- how reasonable assumption is that? k$bo>> i was just asking jerry robbins who was reviewing the study and he just indicated he did review the study but did

, they ultimately recommended approval. those were the highlights of that hearing. which will put us under general public comment. at this time, members of the public may address the commission on items except for agenda items. with respect to the agenda items, i your opportunity to address the commission will correspond with the agenda. i have one speaker card. president fong: great. i have one speaker card. linda chapman. >> at a recent hearing, i told you about the history, and i just wanted to talk a little bit more about some of those buildings we were trying to save. at the time on jones street, there was a big move to demolish rental housing to create condo's. there were lessons learned from that. 1300 sacramento and jones, which is still there, was proposed for demolition. the battle went on for seven years. at the time, it was considered sensitive. it was a curated building. it was landmarked. all the sudden, the developer decided it would be a good thing to develop a 2200 story condo. and he evicted his 22 tenants. and mentioned this before. and then, what happened? the planning commissi
to the battleground state. he stepped up his outsourcing attacks on romney. he used reports by tax notes to claims on romney wants to ship jobs overseas. >> we have not found any serious economic study that says governor romney's economic plan would create jobs until today. i've got to be honest. today we found out there's a new study out by nonpartisan economists that says governor romn romney's plan would create 800,000 jobs. there's one problem. the jobs wouldn't be in america. >> some of president advisors favor the idea as well. >>> we've got a lot more ahead this hour. take a look. >> we just pray that they are found and brougt back to their families. >> few leads but lots of questions over the disappearance of two iowa girls. they went for a back ride and vanished. >> i'm trying to stay positive and hope that god returns them to us safely. >> now the search for clues, anything to help find them. >>> those two americans taken hostage in egypt have been freed. find out how it went down. >>> later, living proof that perti pertistance pays off. how this man recovered his stolen car 42 years lat
used before. so i hope that is separated from this and but, for this project cannot go forward, thank you. >> linda chapman for knob hill neighbors which fought a project once before. i thought 13000 sacramento was the worst thing that happened to knob hill. at least they kept the homeless and blight inside for the seven years that we fought them until we stopped it. during that time, it was recognized as such a threat to the city that all of the neighborhood groups came in and we had a list of 45 organizations including coalitions of churches and everyone else. we have to remember who is the owner here. it is the methodist church. the methodist church needs to get an alternative. they need to stop coming in with this kind of project. you have to use the no project alternative that is considered in the e.i.r. and vote no. and then eventually they will come in with something that will eliminate the blight whether it be partial restoration which we hope will happen or whether it be a project that is compatible with the neighborhood. this is a perfectly decent looking building. south of

at immigration and the u.s. economy. >> susie: that and more tonight on n.b.r.! another disappointing drop in retail sales, a sign that the u.s. economy is limping along. it's the third month in a row that retail sales fell and that pushed down stocks today. retail sales fell 0.5% in june. analysts were expecting an increase. not since the height of the financial crisis has there been a string of declines from the retail sector. erika miller reports. >> shoppers didn't just spend less at department stores, auto dealerships, and furniture stores. spending fell in june in almost every category. that's not the only worrisome sign. when retail sales fall three months in a row, it can sometimes signal recession. but that's probably not the case this time. >> the retail sales report was disappointing. it reflects ongoing slowdown in the global economy, ongoing weakness in the u.s. economy. it should come as no surprise when you see businesses not willing to add significant quantities. >> reporter: today's retail data did prompt some economists to downgrade their estimates for 2nd quarter econom

restraints in place where it is made clear the corporation must use commercially reasonable practices, achieve the project calls, maximize the revenues, and maintain a reasonable cost structure in operating the market. these are all quotes from least -- they must apply best practices of the international facility management association and those of the international right of way association in their transaction dealings with subtenants so we have clear metrics for performance. if they do not, a notice of defect could be provided by the city and the path of resolution is undoubtedly the lease. if not resolved fairly and expeditiously, the city could take the extreme step of removing them management team under the terms of the lease. given however the 50-year excellent working relationships of far, we do not foresee that day coming. yet we have built into the lease this worst-case scenario and resolution to that scenario. there are also robust reporting requirements along the way as we move through the phases of construction. these include approval requirements of this city that covers

process, it is important that everybody is on the same page. you know, when you come in, you try to use your credentials and what you've learned so far, and your work experience, you know, to an advantage. but, after a while, you can only go so far with that and you have to, you know, just upgrade yourself and polish your styles, accounts, and linear techniques because the population you're serving is different than the one you just came from. my hope for the recovery community is that a reconciliation of science and spirituality, that we learn from what science teaches us about the brain and apply it to the more spiritual principles of recovery which talk about what do we want out of life. and there shouldn't be any reason why these two approaches can't coexist. i wish they didn't get me crying.
